Protecting Critical Infrastructure from Cyberattacks

Protecting Critical Infrastructure from Cyberattacks
Government and public-sector entities are highly attractive targets for cyberattacks because many hold significant volumes of highly coveted data and they’re perceived to have virtually unlimited financial resources. These entities are often underinvested in cybersecurity, and are struggling to modernize legacy systems as well as attract and retain talented cyber professionals to their organizations. Public works professionals need to understand the potential threats and how to become resilient to cyberattacks. Webinar, 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. ET | 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. CT | 9:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. MT | 8:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. PT
